Cris Ericson fought the movie industry over their trade secret special effects chemicals and was written up in the Federal Register April 15, 1997 EPA Response to Citizen Petition Against Lead Azide and in Federal Bankruptcy Law Reporter and Westlaw, Ericson v. In re IDC. While Cris Ericson was appealing what she felt was obvious error or fraud by a federal judge, U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy's campaign fund received money from the Dewey Ballantine PAC attorneys who were battling Cris Ericson in federal court over the movie industry trade secret special effects chemicals which turned out to be PETN plastic high explosives, Lead Azide and Lead Styphnate. Mysteriously, all appeals were denied. Cris Ericson complained to the U.S. Senate Ethics committee and they claimed she had not proven that Leahy had taken campaign funds from her opposing attorneys, when in fact, the case litigation was PUBLISHED on Westlaw and Federal Bankruptcy Law Reporter so the attorneys were obvious and it was obvious that they were listed publicly on for donating to their employer's PAC. Cris Ericson decided to run for public office to fight fraud in the courts and in government.
